English project incoporating media studies


School went to Funtasia, Bettystown and Newgrange Farm, Co Meath. School groups travelled by bus to Co Meath, we met in Funtasia and began the day with some exciting rides on the amusements, followed by ten-pin bowling in mixed teams.After a quick bite of lunch we headed over to Newgrange Farm for an afternoon of fun with a tractor and trailer ride around the farm, animal feeding, a maze, sandpit and racing.The weather was lovely so everyone enjoyed being outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine. We took lots of photos and really enjoyed the opportunity to meet after months of electronic communication!

Using the technology for video conferencing was not really a problem but finding a suitable time when both post-primary classes were available was the main challenge of this part of the project. When we did finally manage to arrange a suitable slot the video conferencing was enjoyable. The students were finally able to see and hear each other after months of contact via the forum and wikis. The use of video conferencing has a lot of potential to develop and improve communication aross the border.

For Dissolving Boundaries Day 2014 we invited schools to send us short video recordings that show what DB means to them. We've pieced these together into a movie!

A documentary about linking schools through ICT; case studies of cross-border links between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Dissolving Boundaries programme and in Israel through the TEC program.
